Instrumentals get the boot first for me, in most cases.

So yeah. Endgame.

Well, the first round isn't so hard.

Shiny Happy People. I mean, c'mon. Song's trash.

I will definitely not be sad if Shiny Happy People goes first, even if I think it's not as bad as a lot of people do.

That's pretty much my sentiment. I don't hate the song by any means and it's not going to get my vote this round, but I won't be bothered when it gets the boot. I'm going to listen to the album again and decide what to go with.

This album hasn't held up that well for me. I just listened to it in full this weekend, and I didn't like it as much as I thought I did.

There are great songs for sure, but overall I don't think it's as strong as I did when it came out.

I guess I"m really just not with the norm when it comes to R.E.M. because, like Stand, Shiny Happy People is one of my favorite tracks by them.

I don't think either one is bad. As a matter of fact, on their respective albums, I actually think they're kind of OK. It's only when compared to the classic stuff that they pale.

Yay, love this album.

Easy choice though, Radio Song is quite awful.

Endgame needs

Meh. This album is yet to really grab my interest, and since it's not cool to like popular REM songs, my favourite track here will probably be ousted quickly.

Not sure I can be bothered voting. Guess I might try to prolong Shiny Happy People's run in the game or something.

I say this album should get four songs through, and Green only two...or take one away from Reveal or ATS...lots of good stuff on Out of Time.

Endgame sounds weakest to me.

Wheres u2popmofo? I thought he was an R.E.M. fan? Too cool for the survivor stuff I guess.

Not sarcastic.

Not sure whether to go for Endgame or Radio Song, though it looks like Shiny Happy People is being kicked out the door swiftly anyway.

Okay, nobody touch anything, and we'll lose three at once and exchange high-fives all around.

I love Radio Song.

And Shiny Happy People IS crap.

I don't mind Endgame, but it's going soon anyway so I won't bother to break the tie.
